  • Vista High School also offers counseling support.  Its counselors, Alison and Maggie, are Marriage and Family Therapist Clinical Trainees at the Wright Institute in Berkeley, California.  They are currently serving their practicum with the Y-Team, which is part of the YMCA in Richmond.  The Y-Team provides school-based counseling to schools across Contra Costa County.  Any VHS student who is interested in receiving individual or group counseling can ask their teachers or refer themselves using the referral form found in the office, VH1.  The counselors can help students with a variety of issues including, anxiety, depression, peer and family relationships, and grief, among many other concerns.  Alison and Maggie will be working at Vista School until June of 2019, and are here on Thursdays and Fridays.

  • WELCOME TO VISTA HIGH SCHOOL 

     Vista
     
    Vista High School is an independent study middle/high school that offers a multicultural education in grades 7-12. Vista High School is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood that offers a safe environment where students can receive personalized instruction. We provide an educational setting tailored to meet the individual needs of students.
     
    Students are counseled and aided in their pursuit of educational and vocational goals beyond high school. Students who graduate from Vista earn a traditional high school diploma and develop a clear vision of what they need to do to claim their goals for their future.
     
    Independent study is not for all students; independent study requires basic academic skills and a level of commitment, motivation, organizational skills, and self-direction.  
    VHS the BEST!
    Students at Vista High School take the initiative to maintain their schooling and to complete their high school graduation requirements.  All students in the West Contra Costa Unified School District are required to complete twenty hours of community sercvice.  Vista High School student Tasiana Cordtz, created a Sock Exchange for Families in Need.  All proceeds will benefit a Women's Shelter in Martinez.  Congratulations to Ms. Tasiana Cordtz for the work she is doing for her school and community. We are so proud of you!

    Homework Help
    We provide one on one support and small classes to balance our academics at Vista High School. We believe in our work and we provide our students with the support they need to be successful.  Our individualized approach to learning allows our students to be the leaders of their academic success.
     
     
    Just Us being Us
     
    At Vista High School, our experienced staff goes the extra mile to provide an individualized program for our students.  We offer small classes in conjunction with one to one supervision.  Although our students choose to approach schooling independently, it does not mean they are alone because at VHS, we consider our students, our family.
